The umbi that just won't quit.

E still has his umbilical stump. A lost his right around 3 weeks, but yet E's is hanging on as we approach the 6 week mark. I was moving it around a bit yesterday when I caught a whiff of yuckiness. So, I called the doctor (who had advised me at his 4 week appointment to call if it was still there by Friday--tomorrow) and made an appointment. It's not infected and there's no problem, but she said to call again if it was still around by Tuesday or Wednesday. She also gave me some iodine swabs to stop it from getting infected.

He also has a decent case of heat rash.

But, he was weighed and continues to gain weight. Today, he was 9.9 lbs.
